Just saw this on The Innovative Educator. I’m struck by how well Alan November’s ‘Digital Learning Farm’ resonates with Learning Futures’ ‘Learning Commons’. Click on the link at the bottom to see the ‘innovative jobs for learners’ that he recommends:

In his article “The Digital Learning Farm” Alan November explains that we can restore the dignity and integrity of the child as a contributor. Explaining across the country, pioneering teachers are providing students with new roles that have students making contributions to their learning communities with powerful easy-to-use tools such as screencasting and podcasting that give students opportunities to contribute content to the class. He describes six jobs that outline creative ways that your students can make valuable contributions to their learning community.
